For me it was Pixia a Japanese graphics application (looks a bit like Paint.Net) but thats where the similarity stops, after hours of frustration, buttons that do nothing unless your in a certain mode and loosing the photo I was trying to work on because I wanted to change the text colour I gave up and did what I wanted to do in Paint shop pro in seconds !, as was Pixia uninstalled in seconds. Do you have a favourite bad app ?

Worst PC application software

McAfee security products are the worst of them all. Recently the company was in news for bungling and creating havoc with thousands of computers around the world. McAfee has started offering big discounts to lure customers. Never touch them.

W7 ... oh wait that's an OS :p-

Some of the Driver Update programs are pretty lethal. Wrong driver can mean hours of recovery.

and Wife 1.0 can be a seriously annoying application ... Nagware

Horses for courses. But when Nero stop being a very good and userfriendly burner, and became a suite, I dumped it.

Of course not technically an app, but Windows ME.

I still find Nero to be pretty good. The key for me is to install only the Burning Rom part and not a single thing else of the Suite.

Kaspersky made my quad-core feel like a single, and my drives behaved as slowly as floppies. Don't go for Kasperspy! Also, beware it will nag you to upgrade!
